But as attractive as it is, I’ve never gotten over the feeling that architecturally it belongs in another city, that it was picked up from someplace like downtown Houston or Phoenix and dropped into the middle of Cleveland.  It certainly clashes with the gothic grandeur of the gray arches and heaven-reaching green spire of the Cathedral of St. John a block away on Superior.

Deep Shaker by Les Roberts, Chapter 4

A whole series of mysteries by a guy who loves Cleveland.  What are you reading?

EDITED TO ADD–He is talking about the Galleria on 9th and St. Clair, downtown Cleveland.

    I so want to know what building he is talking about. At least, I am assuming it is a building. Good teaser!

    He’s talking about the Galleria downtown. This book was written in 1991 soon after it was built.

    Is the building the Rock n Roll hall of fame? I grew up near Toledo and had a zillion relatives in the Cleveland area.

    I need to edit my post 🙂 No, it’s the Galleria on 9th & St. Clair.

    I love this teaser. And it reminds me of comments that have been made about the recent huge renovation and addition made to the lovely old Royal Ontario Museum building. A friend of mine said it looked like it had hit an iceberg.

    Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.

    OK – I can’t resist – why would anyone want to pick something up and drop it in Cleveland? JUST KIDDING! I lived in Bay Village briefly as a little girl – wasn’t in the area long enough to form an opinion one way or the other about Cleveland.
